IMHO, The only other player that even makes this a hard decision is if Larsson drops.
When a scout says Strome could be a ' real hit-or-miss' pick,it makes me take notice.I don't think the isles need to take such a gamble.There will be quality prospects still on the board at #5.

Another consideration is that Both Nino and Kabanov are having strong playoffs.

Kabanov in particular is tearing it up in the playoffs offensively.If he has a strong 2010-2011 postseason,then follows it up with a KISS 2011-2012 regular season,I expect the isles will sign him next summer.

Nino joins the Isles next season,then Kabanov makes his push in the team's 2012-2013 training camp.
